My A/C, Rudd silhouette 2 has been leaking for a couple

Customer Question

my A/C, Rudd silhouette 2 has been leaking for a couple months. it has 2 garden size hose fittings at the bottom of unit, but only one has drain tube hooked up. the other one has a constant leak on the floor as long as the unit is running... what should I do?
JA: Have you talked to a construction professional about the floor?
Customer: Not yet, I believe I can replace sub floor and linoleum myself, after I figure out why a/c is leaking.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: hopefully, if it isn't too difficult
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: I don't think so... with 2 runoff holes, but only one connected to drain, can I just plug the other threaded hole?
